The Comparative Rating Scale Model: Occupational Program Evaluation in Higher Education.
Rorie, Charles D.
A comparative evaluation methodology for vocational-technical education programs offered at public community colleges in Texas is described in this study. Evaluation concepts, design and methodology for comparative evaluation, trial of the comparative rating scale model, and feedback loop with recommendations for revision are presented. The comparative rating scale model was developed to provide a comparative rating of similar programs at different community coleges, giving each individual rating in the form of a single rating score. Steps in the development and use of this score are described in detail. As a result of the study it was recommended that the program evaluation section of the Texas State Plan for Vocational Education be thoroughly revised and more precisely delineated through development of a systematic methodology and review of data collection formats.
